Make the most of chance opportunities. Lucky people are good at creating, noticing and acting upon chance opportunities. They do this by being open and adopting a relaxed attitude toward life, therefore they see what is there rather than only what they are looking for. They view every social interaction as an opportunity for mutual benefit and growth. They talk to a lot of people and keep in touch with them. They don’t just interact with people for the sake of interacting. They actually take time to get to know people on a deeper level. This enables them to seize random opportunities from chance encounters.
People who are lucky are comfortable following their gut instincts. They’re positive and open minded and that means they're able to interact with the world with a greater awareness than people who are judgemental. Lucky people notice opportunities and blessings that others miss. They are not afraid to take risks or follow their heart in love, life and career pursuits. They trust themselves because they know that abundance, joy and happiness are their birthright, and everyone else’s birthright, too. They know that there is enough for everyone and they go out of their way to share their blessings and good fortune with others.
Law of attraction practiced prior to the 1800s. If you are referring to arcane practices in Babylon and Biblical times that we have little knowledge of, I am aware and have looked at these. If there are some specific and relevant references I would be interested in hearing them. As you believe in a LOA, most of what you hear will be filtered through this lens. As I now do not, most of what I hear will be seen through that lens.
Get to work changing the things in your life that you can control. When you feel unlucky, ask yourself if there is something you can do to reverse your streak of bad luck. When you direct your attention to the things that you can change (i.e.; your skill level, your eating habits, your attitude) you will notice the Universe being more responsive to you. On the other hand, if you believe that there is nothing you can do to change a particular situation, the Universe will respond accordingly: nothing will change---you won’t find good luck no matter how hard you try. The Universe simply responds to what you believe to be true about your life. Positive thinking, kindness, and compassion are powerful magnets for attracting good luck and prosperity.
One out of many things that struck me were instances in my own life - that pointed to the fact that the reason why I hadn't excelled in work positions in the past - was not only because I had no passion - but because I didn't feel I had the integrity to at the very least do a more than passable job. I was happy getting a C, when a little more effort would have made me a star. Attracting Good Luck means that you are diligent in mastering the opportunities given - so that you can continue to grow and be promoted. It's not chance, or even luck - excellence attracts excellence.
Everyone wants to be lucky. We all want things to go our way and for life to deliver great opportunities, an inflow of money and people whom we get along with. Some seem to have all that. It looks so easy for them while the rest of us struggle along, doing our best and hoping for a lucky break. Thankfully, there are ways you can give the universe a nudge to help you attract good luck.
For some people, it seems like the stars repeatedly align, as if they wrote their own destiny. Despite challenges or hiccups, these people come out of even the toughest situations unfazed, blessed in one way or another by what seems like a miracle. How do they do it? And what if you learned there was a secret to cultivating the life you want? It sounds pretty crazy, but the Law of Attraction is something that many people believe in. So what's the deal with all of it, anyway?
The law of attraction manifests through your thoughts, by drawing to you thoughts and ideas of a similar kind, people who think like you, and also corresponding situations and circumstances. It is the law and power that brings together people of similar interests, who unite into various groups, such as political groups, sports teams, sports fans, fraternities, etc.
"Luck hasn't been random for us--we've earned it. For us, the lucky opportunities have come naturally from literally being in the game with our customers. SteelSeries has innovated products around our understanding of the real needs of real gamers. This relationship has helped us continually introduce products to gamers that solve problems in an evolving landscape...There's no such thing as luck in business unless you are in the trenches with your customers day in and day out."
The reason why luck does not seem to favor you is because of your constant preoccupation with “negative” thinking which is the direct result of limiting thoughts in your subconscious mind. The sad part is that a vicious cycle gets formed – the negative thinking causes events that are not conducive and these events further aggravate the sense of negativity.
Simply put, the Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is believed that regardless of age, nationality or religious belief, we are all susceptible to the laws which govern the Universe, including the Law of Attraction. It is the Law of Attraction which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually. If you focus on negative doom and gloom you will remain under that cloud. If you focus on positive thoughts and have goals that you aim to achieve you will find a way to achieve them with massive action.
